Last week we talked about the Forsyte Saga and Clara and Mr. Tiffany.
This week I wanted to bring you a movie that has several "DOWNTON" actors in the cast: "From Time to Time".
Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Allen Leech (Branson) and David Robb (Dr. Clarkson). And directed by JULIAN FELLOWES!
This is a fun WWII Era-Ghost-Time Traveler sort of story. And the central character: The House!
My kids watched this with me last night and loved it.
My book recommendation this week is The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak.
It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .
As a huge fan of the book, I'm not sure how I felt about the fact that they are making The Book Thief into a movie. BUT I STRONGLY SUGGEST reading the book now...the movie will be out by 2014. And will star Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson. It will be big. Read the book now!
